Understand How CTAs can Work with Your Existing Portfolio
Many managed futures programs have historically exhibited low or even negative correlation with equity indices in months when equity returns have been negative, and positively correlated when equity returns are positive.¹ Dr. John Lintner of Harvard University concluded that "[t]he combined portfolios of stocks after including judicious investments in managed futures accounts show substantially less risk, at every possible level of expected return, than portfolios of stocks (or stocks and bonds) alone."² The Altegris Clearing Solutions team can help you understand, for your specific portfolio, exactly what potential impact the addition of managed futures can have. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Correlations are subject to change. There is no guarantee that the addition of alternative investments to a portfolio will increase returns or avoid losses.
